Key Things to Know
Friends of Scouting
The 2021 Friends of Scouting fundraising campaign is underway. As a nonprofit, the BSA relies on the generosity and support of others to help provide the funds to propel our programs. Every contribution towards FOS makes a huge difference and allows our Council to do so many things including maintain our wonderful camps, provide assistance to families in need, and provide a strong program. The new Program Service fee can be found on our website on the front page.
Recruitment is a year round process. While we focus heavily on recruitment efforts in the fall when school is starting back up, families can join the Scouting movement at any time. One of the simplest things you can do is to make sure your unit’s “Be a Scout” pin is up to date with accurate contact info. Try and check your unit’s pin once a month and follow up with any leads. These are families that want to join Scouting and may have missed us at an open house or traditional Join Scouting event. If you need help updating your unit pin or want to set up additional recruitment efforts contact our District Executive Henry @ Henry.firstname.lastname@example.org
Roundtables are held on the first Thursday of each month at 7 PM, unless otherwise noted. The meeting is held in the Fellowship Hall at Clearview United Methodist Church located at 4515 38th Avenue North, St. Petersburg, Florida 33713. Roundtable always features a unique program and is a great opportunity to meet and network with other Unit Leaders and learn about upcoming events. If you have Roundtable topic ideas, please contact our District Executive, Henry Johnson.
The Skyway District’s OA Calusa Chapter also holds its meetings at Roundtable so encourage your Arrowmen to attend.
Our youth deserve trained leaders. The District goal is to have all registered leaders fully trained in their positions to ensure the youth receive the best program possible. Many training courses are available online at tampabayscouting.org however we can also schedule in person training at the local level. Please contact Training Chair Chair, Louis McBride, (727) 519-4975 with questions or to schedule a training.
